I gave full support to P.U.P.. People are tired of this Government in place. Many people who were not on our list have come out. We see a good turn out from Belmopan Central which I know was part of my strength in Belmopan. Close to seventy percent came out to support and we are working to bring out the rest. My people will come out and vote for Oscar Mira and at the end of the day they will make sure that Oscar Mira gets a win. I pledge to work for the aims and achievements of the peaceful constructive Belizean revolution, and not to be a member or supporter of any other political party or organization which principals, policy, or programs are contrary to, or inconsistent with those of the People’s United Party."
